BT TV channels: What do I get?

You have a number of options when deciding which BT TV package to go with, from Starter with its 70 Freeview channels to Entertainment with its extra channels, such as MTV Music and Comedy Central Extra; and Max where you can watch BT Sport in 4K HD.

Starter

BT TV (www.bt.com) uses a YouView box, which delivers you more than 70 basic Freeview channels if you go for a Starter package. And, because it’s BT, you can get BT Sport thrown in for a small fee as well - but you need at least 6.5Mb broadband to watch it on TV.
